    I always keep a few of those chemical heat paks on hand. Crush one up and toss it in near your feet. Cheaper than buying several different bags.

    Riser for the ignition switch?

    Anyone tried to bring the switch up to where it's accessible? Too hard to get to when it's dark or wearing bulky gloves.
